If you know anything about Joe Bonamassa -the post-millennium's breakout bluesman/pre-eminent Anglophile - you'll know that a lifelong ambition is to blow the roof off Abbey Road. Royal Tea brings Bonamassa full circle, the backdrop of Abbey Road demanded British Blues, reconnecting with the guitar-slinging kid who stumbled across Jeff Beck Group, John Mayall, Cream, etc. In his dad's vinyl collection. Co-written by notables like Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), Pete Brown (Cream) and Jools Holland.
